Maybe I misremember, but I don't think biocLite() has ever > installed suggested packages from CRAN. biocLite has not changed its behavior for this release. However, you can use biocLite to install Suggests. Here are a couple ways to do this: biocLite("limma", dependencies=c("Depends", "Suggests", "Imports")) or simply biocLite("limma", dependencies=TRUE) This has one slight downside: install.packages will install the Suggests for all Depends not just the package you asked for. So you can end up getting many more packages than you really need. + seth -- Seth Falcon | Computational Biology | Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
